Going Public as a Speaker and Getting Booked

May 18, 2021

Today we are going to talk about…you guessed it! Going PUBLIC, letting the world know you are a speaker, AND getting booked. 

You might think that this isn't something you need to do. If I asked someone about you, would being a speaker be in the top three? Do you want to fill up your calendar with speaking engagements? Well, the world needs to know that you ARE a speaker.

You are called to be a speaker, and it's time to let the world know. It's time to share your message that is placed on your heart!

I'm going to go over some tips and give you some homework to help you start your speaker journey. Ready to take some notes? Here are just a couple of things that I'll be going over: 

  • Add the title, speaker, to your social media profile (3:43)
  • Questions to ask your family and friends (4:23)  
  • Let the world know you're looking for connections by posting on social media (5:02)
  • Who do you ask (5:30)
  • Should you still post if you are not 100% sure about your story (6:49)
  • Messages that may be on your heart to share as a speaker (7:11)
  • I'm a speaker, and I speak on ______ fill in the blank (7:42)
  • What happened when I first shared that I was a speaker (8:05)
  • How to respond when someone asks you, “Do you think you're a speaker like….” (8:44)
  • Success or influence as a speaker (9:24)
  • What to do next (12:42)
  • Ask for the introduction (13:38)
  • Get organized with a project management tool (14:14)
  • Never forget this vital item (15:08)

Join my Facebook group and share what step you're on and how it's going. Not on Facebook? No worries, find me on Instagram! I would love for you to share with me how it is going for you. 

Remember, you are not telling the world to “book you.” You are telling the world that you have a God-given message to share with you. It's not about your booking; it's about you sharing your message with the world.
